The thickness of shower room is 6mm, 8mm and 10mm. Generally, the arc type is 6 mm thick, which is not suitable for modeling, and its stability is less than 6 mm thick. Similarly, if you choose a straight shower room, you can choose 8mm or 10mm. However, it should be noted that with the increase of glass thickness, the overall weight also increases accordingly, which requires higher quality of related hardware.
What is the general size of shower room?
The common size of shower room is 900 * 900mm or 1000 * 1000mm. The reason why 900 is set as the minimum size is that 900 conforms to the figure of a normal adult and can have a comfortable space. If the size of the shower room is set too narrow, the bathing space can not meet the basic extension requirements, and the setting of the shower room is meaningless.
The height of the toilet ceiling is about 2400mm. In order to have a good effect of dry and wet separation, the height of the shower room can be set at about 1800-2000mm. Of course, sometimes the reality does not reach the ideal height, so adjust it according to the actual height of the family. If it is too low, it is easy to splash out; If it is too high, it is not beautiful.
When setting up a shower room, the location of heating appliances such as the Yuba or the heater should also be considered. If it is side-hung, it is better not to be too close to the glass of the shower room, otherwise it is easy to get damp; If it is installed on the ceiling, the size of the entire bathroom space should be taken into consideration. It can be hung above the entire bathroom, rather than directly above the shower room.
How to choose a shower room?
- Glass selection
Shower rooms often use glass as the main body and aluminum alloy as the frame. Therefore, when purchasing a shower room, the first thing to do is to judge whether the quality of the glass used is good or bad, which will affect the safety of use. The better the glass, the lower the risk of self-explosion. Generally, the high-quality shower room is usually made of thick fully toughened glass, so you can pay attention to whether the 3C certification is printed on the corner of the glass when you choose it. If it is labeled, you should buy it carefully. In addition, good glass looks very transparent, and there are no impurities and bubbles inside, and the sound is clear and crisp.
When selecting the specific thickness of tempered glass, there are generally 6 mm, 8 mm, 10 mm, 12 mm and other options. Generally, 6 mm and 8 mm are enough for household use. The thicker the glass is, the higher the cost is. If the budget is sufficient, you can also choose a shower room with thicker glass.
- Select profile
Shower room profiles mainly include aluminum alloy and stainless steel. Stainless steel will be superior in strength and durability, but also more expensive. In the selection of profile thickness, it is also recommended to select thicker ones. The thicker the profile, the higher the hardness, and the higher the use safety.
- Select size
The size of shower room can be selected according to the size of toilet. With ample space, you can naturally choose a larger shower room, which is more comfortable to use. If the bathroom space is limited, it is recommended to select a smaller shower room, but not less than 800mm × 800mm to avoid inconvenience.
